2023 | Top 30 expected categories: cars and sports cars – 98.5 Montreal


Auto123 takes its crystal ball and presents the 30 most notable models that will land with us in 2022-2023. Today, cars!

Because the automotive industry never stops, here again is our list of the most anticipated cars of the next few months and/or years. As has been the custom since we started this exercise, we have separated the car into three main categories: Cars and sports cars, utility cars and electric cars.

Remember, with the resumption of electric models, it is quite possible that we will have to revise this list of winners next year. For this first part, we go around cars and, above all, sports cars that can still surprise us with their higher than average level of adrenaline. Make way for cars!

2023 Acura Integra

2023 Acura Integra

It was written in the air that the ILX sedan would be retired, especially in this segment of affordable luxury sedans where Acura’s rep couldn’t keep up.

To strike a blow, Acura decided to bring the name Integra back into its lineup. The sedan will be based on the same platform as the current Honda Civic, but with a hatchback and of course turbocharged mechanics under the hood … and even a manual transmission!

Audi A6 e-tron 2023

Audi A6 e-tron concept, rear three quarters

Since the electric segment is exploding right now, we decided to enter this into the car niche. The Audi A6 is a sedan after all. On the other hand, this new look of the middle sedan will be as electric as possible.

The strategy of the manufacturer with four rings is not yet known and it is a safe bet that the gasoline A6 will also be sold, but you can already count on the electric variant of the German leading lady.

BMW M2 2023

Since the new 2 Series has hit our roads, all eyes have been on the M division, which is working hard to create a car that’s even more advanced than its predecessor. The outgoing coupe certainly didn’t disappoint with the announcement of the Competition and even the CS version, but with the elegance of the M240i xDrive, we can already expect a big replacement for the M2.

Chevrolet Corvette Z06… and more to come!

2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

The bowtie manufacturer has already released details on this Corvette Z06, including a new standard 5.5-liter V8 engine producing a whopping 670 horsepower, with the two-part unit continuing this more extreme ride.

But that’s not all, because Chevrolet is already working on the rest of the story, perhaps an electric version of the “Vette”.

2022 Honda Civic Type R

We can say that the Honda manufacturer has successfully recreated its famous Civic. It’s true that utility vehicles are taking up more and more space, but you shouldn’t rule out a premium car like the Civic.

For sedans, hatchbacks and sedans Not already among us, only the new Type R is missing and Honda has already given a small preview of the second Type R that will come to North America.

2023 Lotus Emira

2023 Lotus Emira

It is very rare to meet a Lotus on the road. The British car division aims for pure driving cars and let’s just say that these English beauties don’t come cheap. But hey, when a new trend is on the horizon, we have to talk about it.

The new Emira will have two powers to replace the Elise/Exige tandem and the more comfortable Evora. This is why the Emira will be available with a 4 cylinder and V6 engine. It’s promising!

Mazda6 2023

Mazda6 (2021)

The Mazda6 hasn’t been released in Canada for a few months, and we’re still dreaming of its return if, of course, management intends to bring it back to the brand’s lineup. You see, the next 6 will now be aimed at a more mature audience, an audience looking for more than all the respect and sporty driving, especially through the use of the 6-cylinder engine in the line.

Mazda6 revisions may seem counterintuitive to the electric industry, but let’s not forget that there is at least a decade left before gas-powered cars lose ground to electric power.

Mercedes-AMG C 63 2023

Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe (2022)

The AMG crest has a strong following in the country, a Stuttgart brand that no longer hesitates to bring as many three-letter tattooed models to Canada as possible. But, when all good things come to an end, it’s time to say goodbye to the V8 engine under the hood of the legendary C 63, a saloon (also available as a coupe) that rivals the BMW M3/M4 and Audi RS5 of this world.

Indeed, the manufacturer is already working on a new generation of the car, the last of which will be powered by a 4-cylinder turbo engine more powerful than the old V8.

2023 Nissan Z

2023 Nissan Z

We’ve been talking about this new Z for a while now. For a while, we thought it was the Nissan 400Z, a figure linked to the power of the new 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine, the same as we find in the Infiniti Q50 RedSport, but hey, the manufacturer has decided: it will be the Nissan Z.

In addition, information for those who are interested, the first year of the model will be very limited in terms of copies. On the other hand, we are already looking forward to trying it. After all, even the 370Z was a fun sports car to drive despite its few flaws.

Toyota Corolla sports, anyone? Forget the names Sport, S or even APEX for once, the Corolla of the 21st century has nothing to do with the Corolla GT-S of the 80s and 90s. lovers for a few months about the version developed by the Gazoo Racing division. There would actually be a GR Corolla in the works, a sporty livery that could have a 3-cylinder turbo engine placed under the hood of the GT Yaris in Europe. Here too, it promises!
